Preventative Chicken Health with Nutrition and Natural Living

"My hens have stopped laying all of a sudden." 

"I don't know why my chickens have started picking on each other; they've never done this before." 

"I've recently had a few eggs that were misshapen and one didn't even have a real shell... it was soft." 

I don't know how many times I've been told stories like this from people that raise chickens.  They want to know what's going on with their flocks.  Most of these people are just normal folks like me and you that are trying to raise healthy birds for eggs or meat.  But, all of them have a common problem: they aren't providing the proper preventative care to keep their flocks healthy.

You see, chickens are really good at hiding when something is wrong and they do this for a very good reason.  In the wild, chickens are prey animals.  If you've ever watched a show on National Geographic, you probably know that predators will watch their potential prey before striking.  Predators will single out the old, sick, injured or weak animals to attack.  Chickens have evolved to not show signs of weakness as a way to avoid being targeted by predators.  So, when a chicken is showing signs that it's hurt or sick, that means it's really hurt or sick. 



It's very easy to overlook a chicken that has a health issue. It's much easier for us to prevent illnesses and injuries than it is to try to treat them once they turn into a major problem.
